from former c.i.a. director david petraeus, who is testifying closed door hearings about the attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. he's wrapped up his testimony before the house neat committee and now before the senate intelligence committee. after this morning's testimony, several members came out to speak to reporters, including the chair of the house homeland security committee and intelligence committee member, party king of new york. >> basically it's still not clear how the talking points emerged. it's a long process involving many agencies. including the department of justice, state department, and no one knows yet exactly who came up with the final version of talking points other than to say the original talking points prepared by the c.i.a. were different from the ones that were finally put out. . this was a terrorist attack. i had a different recollection of that. the impression we were given was that the overwhelming amount of evidence was that it rose out of a spontaneous demonstration and was not a terrorist attack. and pointed out the following week when mat
louisiana this morning. as we noted at the top of the segment, former c.i.a. director david patraeus will be testifying behind closed doors today in the senate elect's intelligence committee. for more on that, we want to turn to warren strobal from routers. mr. strobal, thanks for coming on. what are members of congress looking to hear from david petraeus today? >> well, they have a lot of questions. they want to know what the c.i.a. did to try to move its forces to help field the attack and protect the consulate. and even more than that, they want to know what the c.i.a. told the administration about the causes of the attack and why the explanation seemed to shift from an attack that was, grew out of the protest over the anti-muslim film throughout the middle east, to the explanation later that it was a terrorist attack. host: gives an update on the efforts to track down those involved in the attack. >> if you recall shortly after the attack, president obama said he would spare no effort to track down those who were involved in this attack, but so far there have been a handful of su
of congressmen, including minority leader eric cantor. david petraeus lost his job as the head of the cia. analysts it was all caught up in what has been labeled the military adulteress complex. does that about summed it up? >> yes, it does. it is really unfortunate. it is not the people have never had affairs in high positions in government. cia directors have even had affairs in the past. and we did not fire them over it. but these are different times. my view is that it should have been investigated, because there was a to -- a potential compromise of national security. if they found nothing, and so far they have found nothing, then patraeus should have been read the riot act by the president and should have stayed and none of us would have known. but i have to say that everyone i know in high office in the military establishment tells me i'm wrong. they say you cannot have that kind of person in that high of a position at demonstrating that kind of judgment been compromised that way. >> i agree entirely with nina, and i don't think i've ever said that on the show in 21 years. unless t
with general petraeus and leaving the cia. all of that. and the benghazi issues, which have been bubbling up here for weeks. and really all of this brought it to a head, which is getting attention and getting some answers. members of congress tell me they expect to hear and are beginning to hear the briefings. so you have the top people in intelligence who are here to talk privately. these are typically closed door meetings. then we think we will get some readout for the senior member who is will be able to tell us the sense of what they were able to learn without divulging the classified part but give us a sense of where they are in the process. when i mention the frustration, various members of congress in both parties who have been sending in letters asking for specific information, i've been told repeatedly they're not getting the information they want. so these hearings are an important way to try to resolve some of that. even susan rice and what may be her political future if she were to be nominated from the secretary of state position. having that focus on her is also another way of
